Broccoli, chickpea and roasted garlic soup



0 portion(s)

  • 1 head of garlic
  • 4 broccoli stalks or 1 whole broccoli
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 cups of pre-soaked chickpeas, I soak overnight
  • 1/4 cup of flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable stock paste
  • 1 brown onion

Recipe's preparation

  1. Soak 1 cup of dried chick peas over night in 3 cups of water. This will give you roughly 2 cups of soaked chickpeas to use for your soup.

    Pre heat your oven to 160c. Put the whole head of garlic on a baking tray and roast for 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.

    Add 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary to the thermomix bowl. Peel carrot and chop into 4 pieces, chop broccoli stalks or whole broccoli into roughly 4cm x 4cm pieces then chop on turbo for 4 seconds.   Scrape out and set aside in a bowl.

    Peel and halve the onion then chop on turbo for 3 seconds. Add half a MC of water then cook on varmoa, speed 1 for 5 minutes.

    Cut the bottom off the whole head of roasted garlic and gently sqeeze out each clove of garlic.

    Add pre chopped carrot, broccoli and rosemary, 700g of water, vegetable stock, chickpeas and the roasted garlic. Cook on varoma for 20 minutes, speed 1.

    Add flat leaf parsley and cook for another 5 minutes, varoma, speed 1.

    If you like a smooth soup blend on speed 9 for 2 minutes or you can serve as is if you prefer a chunky soup.



Accessories you need



This soup is great for boosting the immune system, it's also a great way to use up the stalks of your broccoli that often don't get eaten. My children who are 1 and 3 love this. I freeze any left overs in single serves for a quick lunch or dinner.

    Very easy recipe, I used canned chick peas as that's all I had, and added a light sprinkle of cumin and smoked paprika to serve. Super healthy and tastes great, thank you!
